(Funny, and in some ways weird, and you don’t see if happening that often, but the linescore on the game, actually changed after the game was complete and the score had benn sent to MILB.com…Several errors were removed, and each team, the Hoppers and the Hot Rods saw their hits totals increase by one…So we made the adjustments, and as they say at the front office, “it is all about change”.)

Top Hot Rod hitter was Colton Ledbetter, who went 3-5/2 Runs…HRs for Bowling Green from Isaac, Taylor, and James…

Greensboro Grasshopper pitchers were kept busy all day, with reliever Julian Bosnic giving up 6 runs, on 6 hits, and all 6 runs were earned…Starter pitcher Patrick Reilly gave up 2 runs on 3 hits, as did winning pitcher, Elijah Birdsong, with the 2 runs/3 hits…

Bowling Green losing pitcher Yoniel Curet, was hit for 9 runs, on 9 hits, with all 9 runs earned, and he served up one Home Run…Reliever Jonny Cuevas gave up 4 runs, on 5 hits, and he served up 2 Hopper Homers, and Cuevas only lasted an Inning and a-third…

Good to get that win for the Hoppers on Sunday, and they leave out of Bowling Green with two straight victories…On the road later on this week, headed to Hickory to face the Crawdads on Tuesday…
